WHAT IS A NATUROPATH

A naturopath is a qualified health professional who takes a holistic approach to your health and wellbeing and understands the connection between physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

A Naturopath will provide a holistic health care treatment for you that includes dietary and lifestyle advice, herbal and nutritional medicine where required and will work with your GP or other health professional in caring for you.

A naturopath will provide the knowledge and support you need to understand your health problems and make changes to restore your health.

Working with a naturopath to restore your health and wellbeing is a rewarding journey for both practitioner and patient. The patient is educated and empowered to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing while being guided and supported by the naturopath.

 

WHAT IS NATUROPATHY

Naturopathy is a form of holistic medicine that blends traditional and natural healing methods with modern scientific evidence based medical knowledge. It is used effectively on its own or can be used to complement conventional medical treatments where necessary.

While conventional medicine often tends to focus on treating the symptoms of a condition, naturopathic treatment takes a holistic approach by treating the underlying cause as well and provides education, support and preventative measures.

Naturopathy takes a holistic view of the patient that includes the physical, emotional, mental, environmental and spiritual aspects of a person’s life. Treatments focus on maintaining optimal health and the prevention of disease by reducing risk factors.

Naturopathic treatment requires a willingness on your part to make the required diet and lifestyle changes to improve your health. A naturopath will work with you to ensure these changes are achievable and maintainable as well as providing support and education to empower you on your health journey.
